  5. The BMW K1600 is a touring machine par excellence. It has six cylinders, seven computers, multiple drive modes and adaptive headlights. It’s the kind of machine that sends journalists into raptures, and wins Motorcycle Of The Year awards.
    It is not, however, a bike that anyone in their right mind would want to customize. The suspension is fiendishly complex, the wiring loom puts the Space Shuttle to shame, and weight is somewhere on the wrong side of 700 pounds.
